Fast bowler Steven Finn has been asked to spearhead the England attack in the upcoming One Day series in India.

In the absence of Jimmy Anderson, Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann for the One Day tour, Finn has emerged as the team's biggest weapon.

He was the most impressive bowler during One Day tour to India in 2011, and used it as a launching pad to become the third member of England's first choice for the Test pace attack, the Mirror reports.

Bowling coach David Saker said that losing Anderson and Swann from the team means that it is a chance for someone else to stand up and take the lead, adding that Finn is the one who probably needs to take that role. (ANI)
